Hey J-Rene: We might as well be twins. I usually post on the Fibro, website, exçellent website, very active. I was hit by a truck in 09/02. Never had a headache before that, except after a New Years Eve Party. Aspirin fixed that. In 09/02 I was a pedestrian hit in a crosswalk. I walked away, but was in shock and realised later, I was in much worse shape than I ever imagined. The accident involved my whole body being twisted like a top, as the truck hit my back and then my purse hooked into his side mirror, and I was violently swung in a counterclockwise spin.My injuries were neck, facet joints and left ankle. Then the lawsuit. Then trying to live on 140.00 a week, paid every three months, maximum allowable, while lawyers fought for three years. Then foreclosure on my house, my car, I offered them my two teenage boys who I was raising alone, but they left me those. The headaches started through-out this time.The sinus was apart of it. I tried to fly once after the accident, I had unrelenting, most excruciating pain ever in my forehead, had ice pack on head and cried for three thousand miles. Won't do that again. Then bright lights, loud noises became abhorrent. My headache was somewhat lessened by dripping a lidocaine soln. into my right nostril, while lying with head hanging off edge of bed. My headacheds are 90% on left behind eye, in temple. I can feel a blood vessel throb in the temple. Originally, I took advil liquidgels, laid in dark room, ice pack on head, usually after 2nd dose it would recede. then it no longer worked. Then a lady told me Fiorcet (has a sedative in it like phenobarbutal), it sort of worked. Although I wasn't a great candidate for them, Doc started me on triptans. I take zomig. Exactly 20 minutes after I take it (the zomig pill), no headache. Occasional chest pains, but no headache.Good luck.
